It’s been a while hasn’t it friends? This tradition died with summer and I’ll admit I wasn’t devastated to see it go, but its Christmas time so we have to talk a bit about Christmas music. Really when you get right down to it there are about 10 main Christmas songs. Ok probably more then that, but it just seems like there is a ton of remakes. So here are some excellent choices.

Best Version of Santa Baby- Taylor Swift
Best Version of Last Christmas- Jimmy Eat World
Best Version of I’ll Be Home for Christmas- Matchbook Romance
Best Version of All I Want for Christmas- Mariah Carey (yes, it pains us to say that as we are both sort of anti-Mariah Carey, but really did anyone actually like “Touch my Body” ?!?)
Best Version of Do You Hear What I Hear- Copeland
Best Version of Sleigh Ride- Relient K
Best Version of Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree- Miley Cyrus
Best Version of Baby Please Come Home- Anberlin (U2 and Death Cab for Cutie have good versions too)

Great Original Songs for your collection
Santa Clause is Thumbing to town- Relient K
Believe- Josh Groban
Girl of My Dreams- Jonas Brothers
Wonderful Christmas Time- Paul McCartney
Ho Ho Hopefully- The Main

Other Christmas Favorites:
-Manhiem Steamroller (this is on at my ((Sadie)) house pretty much 24/7 all during December)
-Trans Siberian Orchestra (Remember that guy with the crazy light display?)
